    Default "cellulitis" a serious deep tissue infection...and i have it...in my hand!

    http://fc13.deviantart.com/fs42/i/20...illeahWest.jpg
    my hand

    cellulitis, look it up to learn more sice i has to type left handed
    bacteria got into my hand
    dunno if it was a coral sting from my aquarium that let it in or what because somtimes there is no obvious entry wound, you can get this from marine water, pond water and animal bites...and a swollen spot spurred up the day after i moved the rocks in my reef aquarium and 24 hours later had gotten a lot worse

    my hand is in a splint till monday cause movement makes it worse.
    the doc says the swelling should be good in a week but the meds for 3 months are to be sure it does not come back.
    i had to go to the ER at midnight last night for an antibiotic IV and the splint because the swelling got so bad, i am now on some super strong antibiotic pills
    the doc there said had i waited to come in i could have gotten sepsis and the infection could have gone to lymph nodes, there is still a slim chance my hand may need surgery but he says i got in befor my fingers turned into susages so i should be fine

    the worst part is my med coverage ends tommorrow...

    and i cannot work and i had a huge rush job i now have to cancel and i just lost $1000 cause i cannot work with my gimped hand as i am right handed .... hell i can hardly do anything

    No way, a guy who I work with got this in his thigh and it swelled up something horrible.

    Sadly, it does take a good long time for you to recover properly from it. But I hope it'll fly by.

    Cellulitis is a bitch. Got it once from a bee sting.

    Hope your arm gets well soon.

    how bad was it before he got treated?

    luckily it did not take over my whole hand
    it took 12 hours from when i was in my tank to show up and 48 hours after i was in my tank i was at the ER as the area had quadrupaled.
    the base of my middle and idex finger are swollen as well as a 2x3 inch area under my fingers on both the front and back of my hand. i also had one of those red streaks forming down my arm

    Damn, sounds like some pretty bad shit.

    My Dad once had a really bad case of Gout in his right leg, and that took at least 3-4 for him to recover. Granted, not anywhere near as bad as Cellulitis, but crystallization of fluids in the joints sound pretty damn bad too me.

    Hopes to you getting better in a short time.

    Well he woke up one day and it took over most of his arm so it was bad. It kept moving up his arm. Before that It started 3 inch above his hand and started to swell up. Also the red streak was the first thing he saw, he just thought it would go away after a day and then it started to swell, they had to drain it or something, and keep a warm blanket pad over it. The doctors weren't sure what it was until 2 days >.<

    Dude I know your pain... literally! I had it in my foot a few years ago. I was out of work for a week, and I couldn't walk or wears a shoe on my right foot, for the first two days after getting antibiotics until the swelling went down.
